Is the forum up or down right now? ;-)

Personally, I think it's side-to-side at the moment, Carmody.

Oh good, so I'm not the only one seeing a twisted bare-bones version of the forum here.

Heh, thanks.  Guess I shouldn't be all that surprised at the fix.  I've had "security" issues at other sites in the past like this, where supposedly my computer was at risk just by going there, and one was required for work.

New format! Fancy!

There's a bit more white space than I would prefer due to the size of the profile pics (on short posts) and the ~4 rows of extra padding at the bottom of the posts themselves (for longer posts that extend past the profile pic), but overall I kinda like it.

Hmm, might be some goofiness around word wrapping right now. My last paragraph just pulled my entire screen to the right, pushing content off-screen to the left.

Two issues I've already found are that Quick Reply doesn't open, and that there's no "View All Unread Posts" and such anymore.  The latter I'm particularly worried about...  I made a lot of use of that to view new topics, in order to find questions I could help answer and so-forth.  I'm concerned it'll be a lot less convenient and get in the way of me helping people on the forum.

Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

yea, I agree. I used the "View unread posts" function all the time, shame its gone (for now?)
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

In case anyone else gets confused like I did, you can't log in on just any page. Go to the home page ("Shadowrun General" page) and there will be a box in the top-left corner.

From a usability standpoint, this is obviously not as convenient as being able to log in on any page and may not be intuitive to new (or veteran) users.

Quick reply from the development team - 'quick replies' should be functional again.


To address a few of the other comments:


- security errors should be demolished now....we just finished up the last of the mixed security warnings.
- you should be able to login from any page (from the login button in the top menu or hovering over the 'guest' avatar in the top right. If there's something we're missing there please let us know (screenshots are good).
- still looking into the 'view unread posts' function.
- attachments/new avatars: should be working again
- new user emails going to spam: investigating - any other emails going to spam or just those? 
- new theme: let us know if you guys see anything else funky - we've tested pretty thoroughly on our end but definitely let us know if you uncover anything. (and hey, it's finally responsive/mobile friendly!)

After all these years...
I almost can't believe there is a new forum software
So instead of nitpicking, I say:

Well done! (Just wondering what you did with the old hamster...)
